12 yearold geniushttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBW4S9xcTOk Just looking at this.. since sin and cos vary between 1 and 1 there doesn't seem to be any way for this series to converge. Any thoughts? Last edited by Fruityloop (20130907 11:24:05) The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong. #2 20130906 17:21:54
Re: 12 yearold geniusYou are right, it's a periodic function, hence does not converge.

Re: 12 yearold geniusHi Fruityloop; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130906 18:05:59
Re: 12 yearold geniusWhat a charming little tyke. Isn't he adorable? #5 20130906 22:33:35

Oh wow! Now I have a swollen head. Anyways, look at this: http://www.thescienceforum.com/physics/22406doesjakebarnettknowwhathestalkingabout.html I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: 12 yearold geniusHe certainly is a busy little guy. You can not have a swollen melon.
Yea, but I am better looking. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130907 12:05:34

Why should that count? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: 12 yearold geniusIt does not count. I was making a little joke and perhaps responding to the comment. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20130907 13:26:53
Re: 12 yearold geniusOk. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: 12 yearold geniusseems complex and even complicated 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: 12 yearold geniusAnd funny too, don't you think? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #13 20130907 13:58:13
Re: 12 yearold geniusNo. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: 12 yearold geniusWhat is confusing to you? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #15 20130908 05:12:06
Re: 12 yearold geniusThe fact is Jacob Barnett is a fake, immature, gloryseeking and spoiled child. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: 12 yearold geniusI thought his parents were kind of smug. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: 12 yearold geniusLook at this: now the wikipedia page identifies Barnett as a child prodigy. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: 12 yearold geniusI rather like this kid instead. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
